    Maybe you should lie on the side of the road less often.

    I don't stop, I slow down, assess the situation as best I can, and ask if people have everything they need (as opposed to asking if they're okay, which could be viewed as presupposing). I do it regardless of age, gender, race, etc. It's a simple courtesy, that's all.

    Not all problems are readily visible, and I'm not psychic. I don't *know* that you don't have a mechanical. I don't *know* that you aren't in distress. I don't *know* that you aren't lost. I don't *know* that you're just taking a breather.

    Two different people asked if I had crashed. One dude in a car swerved off the road and onto the shoulder - yelled out the window "SIR ARE YOU OKAY??" At that moment I had my bike up and was putting by gloves back on. I shook my head, hopped on my bike, and took off.

    I dont know. With enough people asking me if I am okay and whether I have crashed..... maybe I should check into a hospital. I mean, maybe Bokonon is trying to tell me something.
    OK, I agree that's excessive.

    Default My puppy was stolen by my Dear Daughter already.......

    Snuggle time. To put the 11 week old "Puppy" into perspective the guy in the background is a Big 85 pound Boxer.

    Based on my experience in getting a puppy I say everyone needs to ask Bob "R U OK?
